Interior Design Consultation, Michigan

How can an Interior Design Consultation help you with your new home selections, decorating and remodeling?

One of the many questions that clients ask is "When do I need an interior design consultation?" This is a good question and one that can be easily answered.  You need to call an interior designer at the beginning of your design project.  If you are building a new home and need help on selections, the best advice is to call a professional interior designer and let them look at your new house plans.

Luxury Home Selections | Stay on Budget

Planning is most important when making luxury home selections if you want to stay on budget.

When buying a new luxury home most builders will give you a base price which includes standard selections.

Decorate Your Luxury Home on a Budget

I call them" the might as wells" because that is what people say early on in the project. What happens is when people get to a selection they really want to upgrade, they are already over budget and have to decide to go farther over budget or do without something they really want.
